Running a marathon became very popular. It is a unique chance to feel as a superhero, to meet new people and travel the world. Every year thousands of running events are held in the world. SUISSEPIC discovered marathons which are planned in Switzerland for 2018.

City and nature marathons have become sporting events reported on the radio, television and in the press.

Marathon running includes both physical and mental health benefits. Preparing to run a long distance you have to perform numerous exercises which help you control weight, stabilize blood pressure and lower cholesterol. Physical concentration reduces level of stress and increase energy potential.
